Foreclosure Intervention & Counseling: This FREE counseling is for families and individuals who anticipate having trouble making their mortgage payments and/or those who are already in default. We cover all the options that are available to households who are in need of assistance by explaining how individuals can work with their loan servicer; the basics of loan modifications; Oregon’s foreclosure regulations and timeline; what is a short-sale and deed-in-lieu; the ins and outs of the federal “Making Home Affordable” plan; and how to avoid foreclosure scams. Don’t hesitate and get farther behind in your payments. Take advantage of this free service and come in today! Please call our partners at Community in Action at 541-889-9555 for details.
Rental Assistance: We have some rental assistance available for people who are homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless. Please call to arrange an appointment to pick up a request for housing help packet.
